Why is being able to give a good talk is important?
You need to give talks
a) to communicate what you have discovered
b) to obtain feedback
c) to advertise yourself (every talk is a potential job talk)
d) and to better understand things by trying to explain them to others
Being able to give a good talk is possibly the most important of the survival skills you will learn in graduate school.
